Dazzling dandelion

I love, love, love this shot! I wish I could take credit for it's originality, but I copied the idea from a local photo contest I entered. When I saw the orginal, I was struck....and probably have no chance of winning the contest now. But hey, it did inspire me to go out and try my hand at this shot. What I really like is the fact that when I saw it I knew immediately how to acheive it. I picked the dandelion, held it up positioned in front of the sun, and metered my camera for the sky instead of the dandelion so it would have the silhouette effect. It pleases me to know that I have learned enough about photography that I can recognize these techniques now instead of scratching my head wishing I knew how they did that. I just wish I had thought of it first...

3 thanks for stopping by, i love comments!:
